  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Now this is a ultra rare Irish whiskey! According to Celtic Whiskey Shop this was distilled at the long gone North Mall Distillery in Cork City, bottled at 7 years old by M Sullivan of Easkey, Co Sligo. There is no statement of contents volume or alcohol strength. My guess would be that this whiskey was bottled in the 1930's or 1940's. Sample from the bottle of The Auld Alliance Bar in Singapore.
    • Nose
      The nose starts husky with some earthy peat and wet stones. Greenhouse associations of freesias and rhododendrons. Herbal green tea. Also mint-apple. Chalk. Some rubbery notes at the background. After such a long time in a bottle it's all very subtle and fragile.
    • Taste
      More on licorice now. Cough pastilles but also a touch of burnt sandal wood and nettles. Wet hay. Later on dried-shellfish and smoked-mussels. Artichokes and coffee-green as well. It's still amazingly creamy, while I would have expected it a little thin as usually with these old spirits.
    • Finish
      Medium long, dry and slightly bitter. Pine and some salt a the end. The profile of this whiskey is so different than we are used to nowadays. On an emotional level I would score it at 90+ purely on the experience and opportunity to try something this old. Technically, the nose and palate would be probably around 80-82 points. So let's keep somewhere in the middle.
